I know you want me to tell you about the promo code. 

First, you have to listen to a little story. 

My Personal Agile Transformation

Some people come into your life and change everything. It may start in a subtle way, kind of like that butterfly flapping its wings. One thing leads to another, events just seem to unfold, and the domino effect takes over. Then, before you know it, you're living a different life. 

I experienced this phenomenon in June of 2011. I was attending my local PMI chapter's Professional Development Day conference, and I decided to attend a session titled "Transitioning to Agile", which was being presented by Jimi Fosdick.

It was, in a word, epic. My whole career and subsequently life have changed because I met Jimi. 

Jimi is one of those people you have to see in action. He has the ability to command a crowd, grab every ounce of your attention, and hold on to it for as long as he is speaking. His passion and dedication are contagious, and you will find yourself sitting there and nodding, with your ears completely perked up and ready to listen. 

Jimi has been to Salt Lake City a few times after that event, and he's coming again, one month from now, to teach a Certified Scrum Product Owner class. 

The Product Owner is a role I'm truly passionate about. Product ownership is the bridge to Product Management, which companies are starting to embrace as they understand the need for a role that focuses on building the right thing, and not just building things the right way. 

If you are in a role where you represent the customer and the business and are responsible to make sure features and benefits get prioritized and executed well, you will want to attend this class. The skills you will learn are invaluable, and the person you will learn them from is unmatched.
